Artist Statement

Strickfaden works with the artistry of color, line and texture to portray a singular interpretation of her connection with nature and the ocean in her Abstract works. The pieces show principles of design, composition and texture, translucent and opaque dripped color, and layering. She draws inspiration from the colors of the ocean and landscape, yet interprets them in an organically shaped abstract application. These pieces are a mixed media of recycled house paint, ink and pastel and/or oil stick either on wood panel or canvas.
Strickfaden is constantly perfecting her art, always pushing, changing, and trying new approaches to her work. She looks for inspiration in the beauty and color of everyday life. She feels that without this constant change, her work would be lifeless.
